Reggae Album Artwork
Every so often I get around to posting some reggae album covers that I come across. Most folks do not share my obsession with Jamaican culture and music. For whatever reason I can bug out for days on album cover artwork and photos. You can see the parallels between these album covers and some of the concepts that go into Heavy Manners whether they are conscious or sub-conscious.
By sheer coincidence look at the U-Roy album cover font (top) and the N*gger Kojak album font (bottom). Justin mocked up the typeface for Heavy Manners almost a year ago, but you come across stuff like this all the time. Although, there was some "kerning" and changes made you can see that they are one in the same.
